After writing a about a french workaround, I tried first the https://wiki.ubuntu.com/X/Bugs/Lucidi8xxFreezes workaround. It seems to be very well for me and my VGN-B1XP.
I don't now if it would be better for the system to use the new kernel instead, could somebody explain me the difference ?
To Maachi : I've got the same computer than your and don't notice what you said about touchpad, could you explain ?
Thanks to all.
Hi all !
I tried the soltion with new kernel and it work fine on my VGN-B1XP, so i think it's better not to change modeset but to work with the new kernel. what I did exactly :
(thanks to Xdoomer)
j'ai effectué avec succès les indications de son post #12 sur http://forum.ubuntu-fr.org/viewtopic.php?id=390979
1)upload kernel 2.6.33 lucid here : http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/ma … 3.3-lucid/
2) write files on an USB key
3) upload CD Alternate.
4) Install alternate CD en mode minimal (mode texte).5) Install finished :
reboot, and at boot press maj to access grub menu then e to edit first choice, write i915.modeset=1 at the end of line, then ctrl+x
copy files in personnal directory
sudo dpkg -i linux*.deb
7) Instal ubuntu-desktop :
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop (peut être besoin de "--fix-missing" ...)
(Did nothing for me)
I miss though the possibility to suppress accidental movement of the cursor while typing. This worked on previous th of Ubuntu with help of an extra application, but I cannot find the application on the Lucid repositories.
Ciao, Cheers, /Macchi
The laptop Sony Vaio VGN-B1XP running Ubuntu 10.04 Long Term Support crashes totally if I click on a web link with an mp3 file with Firefox!
Lets hope the new kernel arrives soon with a solution to this. Manual installation of a new kernel is not a good solution because we have lots of different systems and I want to keep them configured in a similar way.
I've found a solution to all problems with Lucid on our VGN-B1XP : have a look at : http://glasen-hardt.de/?page_id=697&cpage=1#comment-664

I have a Dell Inspiron 1150 with the 82852/855 GM video. I have installed Ubuntu 9.10 and everything is working fine. Even wireless. It's asking me to update to 10.04.1 LTS and everything that I have read on these and other forums tells me that I should just leave the machine at version 9.10. Does this sound right?
